I know He knows.


Someone asked the question in Sunday School yesterday about why women aren't mentioned much in the scriptures.  Actually, I think it was the teacher who brought this up for discussion.  Some people in class gave ideas about why this is so...they had good answers, which I won't explore here.

But I had my own answer.  The thought that welled up inside of me is this: Only one person is supposed to get the glory in this world, and that is God.  I don't need my name to be written in scripture, because I know God knows what I do in my home day after day.  And that's enough for me.

I am grateful to be a woman in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which contains the fullness of His gospel, and I am grateful for the personal relationship that I have with Him.  (And with that...here come my kids!)

  4. So many women want to compete with men and are fixated on fairness rather than truth and order, serving quietly and being grateful for guidance from above.
